As a user of this controller, I think that if it is not then this patch
should be changed to export it or should be dropped. The data from that

cables or breaking disks/cdroms).

Per Bart's suggestion, I've created a user-space app which shows identical data (and doesn't even rely on the via82cxxx IDE driver).

So, I think we should be clear to drop /proc/ide/via now.
